Move Update 7/29/16

We just finished the first phase of our three phase move and are getting caught up on all orders.  Should have our production queue worked off by close of business today.

Here’s the rest of the schedule for our move:

  • Aug 4-11: Phase 2 Move;  Shop Closed
  • Aug 12-19: Shop Open in CO
  • Aug 20-31 : Phase 3 Move; Shop Closed
  • Sept 1st:  Shop Open in IL

We will keep the online store open during this entire period, but please expect about a 10 day lead until Aug 19th.  After Aug 19th lead times will likely be about 14 days until we get the shop up and running in IL.   We expect leads to be back to normal around Sept 7th. We will update the blue site banner as we progress.

Thanks for your patience and support!

We Are Moving!

Watch the blue site banner for current lead times.  We will keep that updated as we progress through the move.

Rocketship Systems and FlyingFoam will be moving this Summer.  Specifically, over the next 6 weeks.  Our plan is to be move complete and be back up and running full tilt by Sept 1st.

We love Colorado, but we had a great opportunity to move back home to Illinois, so we took it.  We will be moving in stages and will keep the shop running here until August 19th.  We will then shut down and move to be back up and running by Sept 1st.

Also, some of you may notice that Amy is now signing off on some of your orders.  My awesome wife has joined me full time at the shop.  FYI, she likes to be addressed as Queen of Foam.

Thanks for your patience and understanding as we make this transition.

Best,

Shop Update 4/28/16

Some of you will notice that the Kits and Accessory sections are no more.  We continue to stay very busy cutting Quick Order Cores and EPP Sheet, and sell very few kits.  So we decided to keep FlyingFoam focused on what we do best, which is to CNC some of the best wing cores in the business.  The FlyingFoam designs can still be purchased as cores in the Standard Cores section.  We do have some fans of our designs so we wanted to make sure you could keep them in the air.  You will just need to source your own kit parts going forward.  Thanks for your understanding.  Good flying!

Site Update

We are sill in the process of moving a few things around on the server, and between service providers.  I am initiating a move that may cause the site to go down for a few hours.  Sadly, I do not have any control on when it happens as that is between the service providers involved.  Could be any time in the next 1-5 days.

UPDATE:  Looks like sometime on Jan 25th the service transfer will complete.  Should not cause any more than a few hours of down time.

UPDATE 12/27/16.  Service transfer complete.  We should be good to go.

Shop Status 1/20/16

Happy New Year ! Wait a minute!  It’s almost February?  Since I just spent the last ten days building a new web site I am a bit behind in the office.  And I need a nap.  I am about 100 emails behind, so I will get a BIG mug of coffee first thing in the morning and start working through your emails and quote requests.  Hopefully the new Quick Order Cores will prevent you guys from waiting on me as much in the future.

The good news is Aziz has been cutting and shipping foam while I worked on the new site.  We are down to about a week of backlog in the shop, and it’s usually closer to three.

It’s about time for you students out there to remember you have to build stuff to graduate, so bring it on.

Regards,

Coby
